We just had a very wonderful and memorable experience here today. The lady Helen and another gentleman could not have been more accommodating. We have 2 little girls 3 and 6 and due to Covid restrictions we had to eat outside. It had been raining...and Helen brought out clean towels and warm tea for us. When we ordered lunch it poured rain and herself and colleague rushed to moved us to a shelters area. Helping out coats on our girls. The food was delicious the girls were spoiled and the surroundings were glorious even in the rain. I could not recommend somewhere better. Super pleasant and enjoyable lunch.More

Have had many meals in the restaurant over the years, I can honestly say that The Roundwood Inn never disappoints! The food is excellent, the staff, a lot of them have been there for years,are extremely friendly and very helpful,the atmosphere is cosy and homely,...I can’t think of another establishment in the country that offers pretty much everything that you could want from,an old traditional pub,delicious wholesome pub grub and an excellent dining experience in their restaurant. Twenty out of ten!More

Called into to the Roundwood inn on route back from visiting Glendalough. It had rained heavily so we were soaked. Came into the inn and the fire was roaring, just what we needed. We had the homemade veg soup, sandwiches and wheaten bread. It was...all so delicious and warmed us right up! Lovely traditional Irish pub and had a lovely atmosphere on a wet Saturday afternoon. Staff were lovely as well- I would highly recommend a visit here :)!!More

A popular long established eatery, prime placed on the main thoroughfare was ideal for a welcome dinner. After a warm welcome from the friendly and cheerful staff we turned attention to the menu. From the broad choices we had lovely mains. Followed by equally tasty...dessert plus coffee and cappuccino. All dishes arrived without delay, courtesy of the attentive staff. With the relaxed atmosphere and good value, it counted as a most pleasant interlude.More

Called in here after a walk in Glendalough with 2 friends. Lovely atmosphere, with open fires. Pint and food were excellent, to be recommended.

We were looking for a place for dinner not too far to drive. The Roundwood Inn offers typical bar meals. For a county side pub the price level from our point of view was at the higher end. The food and service were o.k.

We visited the Roundwood in one Friday evening in July, 2 families with 7 kids aged from 3 to 10. As soon as we walked in we felt awkward, everything stopped and all eyes on us. We asked about food etc a d all was...good to go and we were told we could sit at a large table, then we all sat and the waitress had a quiet chat with the barman. The barman came to us, sat down, asked were we in for dinner to which we said yes. He paused, we asked was it ok, kids, time being 7.30pm, too late etc to which he asked us to move and all sit together so as not to disturb other diners. We just felt really unwanted. Later the waitress was nice to us and the kids. The food was fine but for pub grub it was overpriced. The following nights we went elsewhere needless to say. We wont be back with or without kids.More
